    Default BT5 RAM consumption

    Hi,

    BT4 was using like ~200MB ram and now BT5 ~600MB.

    Is there any chance (DYI methods?) to lower the RAM consumption?


    Regards

    It's time to upgrade your memory.
    This is not a BT issue but rather a compatibility issue from upstream.
    If upgrading is not an option then you may need to look into a more suitable distro. But in all honesty starting the x server is going to take up a bit of resources, and since the majority of tools are command line there should be no real problem.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
